Catholic Homeschooling Families
H
ello from the Gowans’ family! – Dad Bob, Mom Andrea, son
Hugh (age 9), daughter Lauren and twin brother Leo (age
7), and beloved cats Mr. Kitty and Stella.
We live on a 300 acre ranch with a
vineyard, fruit orchard, pecan trees,
chickens, fishing pond, a John Deere
tractor, four wheelers, and all the
accoutrements that come with living
out in the country. Our town’s public
schools are rated among the best in the
area.
Families from neighboring towns vie
to have their children transferred into
our public schools. There is a Catholic
elementary school in the next city, and
there are a number of excellent private
schools. Our family chooses a different
path. We choose to homeschool.
Are you going where God
wants you to go, or where
you are expected to go?
Up until a month before we started
homeschooling, neither my husband
nor I had ever heard of this thing called
“homeschooling.” Concerned for the
spiritual welfare of our children, our
pastor was the one who introduced
us to the idea. At the same time, my
husband and I already knew that we
had to reconsider the option of public
schooling for our children. Intrigued by
this alternative of conducting “school
at home,” my husband researched
the academic aspects, while I read
a number of books (including Dr.
Clark’s homeschooling manual), and
